Asbestos Awareness Training

Asbestos awareness is essential for employees whose work has the potential to expose them to asbestos.

Our Asbestos Awareness training covers the current asbestos awareness regulations, control procedures, common hazards and your safety.

You can have a look for our training courses for Asbestos Awareness training here, or in our full training packs here.

As well as being a legal requirement and a prerequisite for gaining a CHAS accreditation, the benefits of having this training can in some cases be lifesaving.

It’s flexible.

You can choose to attend one of our in house training courses or use our online training – which you and your staff can access from your computer for just £25pp + VAT.

What does the course cover?

  • The properties of asbestos and its effects on health
  • The types, uses, and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant
  • The general procedures to be followed when dealing with an emergency in the event of the uncontrolled release of asbestos dust in the workplace
  • How to avoid the risks from asbestos


On-going assessment of understanding throughout the training. Multiple choice questions within or following the presentation.
